First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

I don’t think anything I say in this review can truly do this book justice. Like. I don’t even know what to say except that this book was amazing and I’m mad I didn’t read it sooner and it’s 100% one of my favorite books of all time, ever.

The characters. The plot. The writing. There’s nothing about this book I didn’t love. My only gripe is that I want more of this world and these characters. Someone please tell me there’s going to eventually be a sequel because I NEED MORE.

This book was hyped up so much for so long. I think that’s why I waited to read it; I was super excited for it but worried that it might have been over-hyped. I was wrong. So wrong. I wish I’d read it sooner. I’ll def be re-reading it. And Casey is now on my auto-buy list forever and ever. I’m already reading One Last Stop and loving that, too.

I feel like I should say more, but I also feel like this book has been reviewed and discussed like crazy, and you’ve heard it all already. But just know this book is just as good – better – as everyone says it is, and it’s 200% worth the read. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
